Hey there, everyone!
Can’t make it to one of our 2018 conferences? Not to worry! As in previous years, we’re excited to be able to live-stream the “Ask Anything” panel with our 2018 speakers, so all of you amazing young writers who can’t make it to Ch1Con and Ch21Con 2018 still get to participate in something.
This year, the participating speakers will be:
- Gloria Chao (American Panda)
- Amanda Foody (Ace of Shades)
- Christine Lynn Herman (The Devouring Gray)
- Allison Mulder (acclaimed short fiction author)
- Karuna Riazi (The Gauntlet)
The panel moderators will be Emma Rose Ryan (Ch1Con director) and Julia Byers (Ch21Con director).
The Ask Anything panel will take place during the conferences on Saturday, August 4th from 4:00 to 5:00 PM CDT (5:00 to 6:00 PM EDT).
This is totally free and you don’t need to sign up for anything; it’s simply our gift to you to thank you for all of your support throughout the year. You can find the live-stream on our organization’s YouTube channel at:
Or, we’re conveniently embedding the video in the post below:
We’ll be asking the panelists a mixture of questions from both the attendees at the two conferences and those of you watching from home. The questions can be about absolutely anything you want, serious or goofy, writing-related or not. (For example, in 2014 we asked our speakers about their OTPs. One replied that she shipped herself and Panera.)
If you’ll be watching the live-stream and would like to ask the speakers a question, there are two ways you can go about doing it:
1.) If you already know what you’d like to ask, you can email your question(s) to us at firstname.lastname@example.org any time until the day of the conference.
2.) If you come up with a question while you’re watching the live-stream, you can tweet it using #Ch1Con or #Ch21Con.
Either way, feel free to ask as many questions as you’d like. No promises we’ll make it through every single question during the hour-long panel, but we’ll do our best.
Thanks again for supporting us, guys! It means the world to everyone on the Chapter One Events team.
See you at 4:00 PM central/5:00 PM eastern!
